Test Your Water

Effective treatment for your home or business begins with a simple water test.
Private well water may appear clear, but it
may contain varying levels of contaminants.
Private well water may appear clear, but it may contain varying levels of contaminants such as lime (hardness), dissolved iron, manganese, heavy metals, color, odors, grit, silt, turbidity and bacteria. A simple water test may reveal harmful contaminants that are invisible, odorless, tasteless and undetected. Some contaminants cause immediate illness, while others can create serious long-term health problems. Contaminants seep into groundwater and can affect your drinking supply. The EPA recommends annual testing for private wells and drinking water sources and before you put a new well in service. Protect yourself and your family by testing your water at the point of use. It is also highly recommended that you test the well before buying a property and before choosing a filtration system. Never assume a standard water softener or filter can be used on well water. Seek advice, almost all water problems can be corrected using a selection of properly specified equipment based on a full chemical and bacterial analysis.

Health Risks Related to Water Contaminants
  • Health Risks Related to Water Contaminants
  • Many homeowners assume that their water is safe and they avoid testing for harmful contaminants. It's the "what you don't know won't hurt you" syndrome.
  • You should know what's in your water and whether treatment is appropriate for you. Almost all water problems can be treated.
  • Some contaminants have annoying aesthetic effects.
  • Some contaminants pose significant health risks.
EXAMPLE REPORT
Well Water
Although we can perform limited, on-site water testing, we recommend a comprehensive third party lab test. We have completed a list of contaminants that occur in this area, rather than a longer list of contaminants found across the country.
City Water
Water quality can be highly variable, depending on where the residence is located and the source and treatment processes used for that water. The biggest complaints about municipal water are the taste of the water and the staining caused by hardness and silica. We offer multiple, affordable solutions for these problems.
Community Water
Community systems are highly variable, typically as a result of the water chemistry of the supply wells. We can test this water if comprehensive testing is not available.
Realtors
We commonly work with realtors to provide water testing and estimates of remediation for their clients. Water chemistry mitigation can be very important in real estate negotiations. Realtors need to be mindful of the turnaround time for comprehensive lab testing.
